Apologies for the simple question, but are you logged in as a local administrator, or a domain administrator?
I found this a really great article. Am hoping that a part 2 has been written? "I personally redirect to a local copy of the structure I have on the Server. This is maintained by a Startup Script. This I will cover in a 2nd part to this article, including the script used." -
Would love to know more about this as I generally use an UNC to the server but this takes sometimes quite a while on network that I have managed before.
Huh, doesn't do that for me here (not that I'd want it to, with all my tabs it'd take me twenty minutes to get to the window I wanted). What is annoying, though, is that a single press of Alt+Tab switches to the last window, a single press of Win+Tab just shows a fancy 3D effect but doesn't switch to anything.
IE does count each tab as a separate window for Aero Peek though, which is a bit annoying as well tbh - fills up too fast, I'd rather switch to the window and then to the tab. I will concede that that is entirely personal preference, though

Especially when I have multiple tabs open, alt+tab counts internet as 1 thing, win+tab does them seperatly. [I think, for some reason aero won't enable on my normal account and I can't get into personalisation.]

Though when the time comes, it is probably the method I will write up as a tip, because people do love the shiny.
I forgot all about the shake...
Also, Aero win+tab >>>> alt+tab
Probably a daft question, but how did you guys manage to get the exe to install silently?
We do the exact same thing here, the only thing I would note is that our Task Scheduler doesnt seem to take daylight savings into account.
Just something to note.
Clusters in my experience are way more trouble than they are worth.
Its a feature that could be good if you had 1,000's of servers but not really suited to single organizations.
I think M$ and Sony should consider this approach carefully, after all I suspect there is a number of people out there who buy the newest releases without question knowing they can sell it once they have completed the game and recoup some of the money. If this isn't possible then they may find people are more cautious when it comes to buying games and their sales drop accordingly...
Thanks for this. We're just starting our on our HyperV journey so interesting to read.
Cheers for that link. Here's one in return : Create, Engage and Assess through mobile devices. | Interactive Lessons | Mobile Learning | Apps for Education | iPads in the Classroom |
Nice to hear it is improving and listening to feedback. I'm not impressed they are still using SharePoint though.
I couldn't imagine going back to all those provisioning layers, and hassle of active directory accounts, changes to your core AD structure ect.
I still also don't get where the product is going. Is it a Parent Gateway? (which is what everyone wants) or is it some kind of replacement for Sims on the web? (which is what we want as well, but not in the same product or based on SharePoint)
Thanks for comment Vikpaw - I didn't get chance to go to the sessions on iPads, which I regret. Perhaps I would have got some ideas from there.
As you say it needs trials in small groups, which I think our school are going to do next year with some year 7s. We will see how it goes. I also have heard the positives about Chrome books - we are looking into this now.
Thanks for the links to the slides, very useful. With regards to OCR and Raspberry Pis, as I said, they were very good indeed and showed how you can do simple programming to make things like lights and motors work from code. They have now put the resources online: ICT and Computing - Raspberry Pi - OCR.
Hey, good to hear your comments.
There were a number of seminar sessions for using ipads in the classroom, as well as how to manage them. It's not as easy and straightforward as you'd first think. Quite a few ideas though.
It depends on what you / the school wants to achieve. Just having them for the sake of it, because, as you say there is a lot of hype, would be the wrong reason. I'd want to do trials in small groups.
There's no doubt that iPads are slick and easy to use, but i've seen groups of kids evaluate devices and opt for chromebooks over them. iPads are the hardest to manage, but seem to be reliable and have plenty of decent apps out there.
Check the #lutonipadbett tag on twitter for some tweets on the deployment / issues session. Also the slides are supposed to be on http://www.elearningtv.co.uk/View.as...02~4f~EhCZuTCg
I missed the OCR sessions, so if you have notes / links etc that would be useful.
@midiwife - so great that you chose to sign up.
we'd be very interested to hear what led to your decision.
Did you know about EduGeek before hand?
Did you chance upon the stand, or seek it out?
Who did you talk to on the stand?
What made you sign up?
Do please introduce yourself here http://www.edugeek.net/forums/genera...self-here.html so you can get some welcome hugs and maybe an eduhobnob.
These are instructions on how to get Youtube for Schools working through an ISA server. Can't vouch for it myself as I gave up on getting it working - seems a lot of effort for minimal gain. I was just reposting in case anyone else found it useful.
Sorry this might be a dumb question, what options / functions does this bring or enable?
Ahh, I was thinking of when the drive had lost its partition info, not physically failed. I have also seen when this happens, that windows (especially W7) fails to assign a drive letter too. Maybe I have been a tad luckier than most in that respect!
